COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A light-bodied, full-flavored unfiltered beer brewed in the tradition of European wheat beers. Wheat malt, the finest barley and Roasted Caramel malts are combined with Pacific Northwest Cascade hops and a touch of pure honey for a wheat beer with a smooth, crisp finish.

Not the best wheat beer I have had. A little bit of a bitter taste that left you with a bad finish. Poured great, with nice fluffy head.

beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - JAN 22, 2007
Pours a hazy golden orange with a soft white head. Not much wheat in the nose, lightly grainy malt, faint hops. Flavor has a mild honey malt flavor, then fading to a bitter and watery finish. Kinda cheap beer taste in the finish, very thin tasting. Not as bad as most other Weinhards brews, but can’t hold up to the other american wheats in this area.

harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - JAN 20, 2003
Not a bad hefe at all. Not overyly sweet and not overly citrusy (is that a word?) Both of which I think this brew could have used more of. I will still by Widmer though.

Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - APR 23, 2002
Clear gold in color, frothy white head, large and long lasting, accompanied by sheets of lace. Nose malt, a bit yeasty, somewhat earthy, actually quite pleasant. Sweet at the front, top light, the finish is lightly hopped, lightly carbonated, slightly dry, drinkable, but not a ’top Notch’ beer in any category.

BuckeyeBoy (2623) - Boise, Idaho, USA - FEB 21, 2008
12oz bottle pours out hazy gold topped with a small white head. When I see on the bottle Hef. I was thinking hey it must be a hef. After I poured it out and there was no hef aroma. I say what O it is a wheat beer ok. So on this the aroma malt and grass. Tast more malt a touch of hops. Only 4 more to go and my mix pack will be done.

Bockyhorsey (2609) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - DEC 18, 2005
Aroma was basic crop fields of wheat and corn. Light orange color body with white head. Flavor had a metalic feel to it. Some fruit flavor was trying to come into play but it was faint. I guess there is a reason this is sold for 92 cents a bottle.

jake65 (2591) - Williston, North Dakota, USA - DEC 14, 2006
Notes from summer of ’04. Bottle: Straw colored hazy pour with a smaller white head. More grainy than wheat, no real hops taste. Very faint aroma of grain. Not real impressive.

mjg74 (2490) - La Mesa, California, USA - AUG 14, 2008
UPDATED: OCT 15, 2008 Bottle from Hamilton, MT. Slightly hazy amber color. Slightly sour grainy aroma. Lightly spiced grainy flavors. Finish is a little watery. Only the slightest hint of yeast.

troopie (2292) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - AUG 15, 2009
Bottle. Poured very hazy yellow with thin lasting white head. Aroma of cloves and warm rubber. Thin flat wheaty flavour, with a couple spicy notes. Flat finish. Somewhat under commonplace.

bitbucket (2159) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - JUL 7, 2006
Pours a hazy light amber with a slight white head that quickly diminishes to a ring of foam. Not a lot in the aroma: a bit of yeast, a very little fruit. Medium body with somewhat fizzy carbonation. The taste is lightly bread/citrus sweet. Just a touch of spice on the relatively quick, dry finish. Definitely from the American branch of the hefeweizen tree. Not much going on in this beer in the way of charactery, but it’s probably a good candidate for serving very cold with a wedge of lemon on a very hot day.
